Cool, thanks for pointing that out, Casey. I changed a line in Gaim's
and that seemed to fix it.
Also I managed to get our Howl section in configure.ac to first check for the
existance of Avahi's Howl compatibility layer and use it, if found. If Avahi
isn't installed then it'll check for Howl.
So now Avahi should be auto-detected and those two options to
configure/autogen should not be needed.
